  1. Very nice collection of fonts. They look very nice not only for logos. Thanks for highlighting them.

  2. awesome. i love the handwritten look.

    another quality resource for fonts is http://www.pilo.me – it is a typography forum that is private and by moderation approval only, but if you can get in, it can provide you with about any font youd ever want. i know alejandro paul, house industries, canada type, font shop and others call themselves members.

  3. The 3D effect brought out on the Grutch Shaded is really awesome…Some of these are very cute…I loved the calligraphy of Estyra, Christopher Hand and Harrison…Also I loved the Whiteboard…Thanks for sharing this….Waiting for more of these…

  4. ‘Note This’ is my favorite..
    I think it will work well in certain point in my presentation.
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    It is very great post

  5. This is a good selection. You picked excellent fonts that look like handwriting, but added in many that are useful because they have a handwritten look but are not actually handwriting. I especially like Handvetica, Sketch Rockwell, Karabine and Caitlyn. Thanks for a great list.

  6. I am trying to rebuild my portfolio and the fonts will come in very handy! You saved me a lot of work and especially annoyance, thanx
